Making Linux a Genuine Windows Replacement

With Windows 8 casting a long shadow over the PC industry and Valve committing to create Linux-based gaming PCs, there’s never been a better time to start using Linux. For many users, the Linux desktop is now there — so many applications have moved to the cloud, hardware support has improved, and the desktop has been polished. You can even watch Netflix and play a variety of games on Steam — two big holes that have been filled recently.

Why Used Games Are Not Evil [Opinion]

Why Used Games Are Not Evil [Opinion]

As a casual gamer I rarely buy brand new games. The number I’ve ever bought on launch day can be counted on one hand, though GTA V will be added to that short list soon. I usually buy used games weeks, months, or even years after a title is released. As is my right. Or is it? The used games market is under increasing threat, to the point that it may cease to exist over the next few years.

Can An App Really Help You Sleep Better?

I’ve always been a bit of a sleep experimenter, having for much of my life kept a meticulous dream diary and studied as much as I could about sleeping in the process. There are a number of apps now on both iOS and Android that claim to help you sleep better by waking you up at a good time. Let me explain how these apps can make such bold claims, and examine if they actually work. You might be surprised.

What One Website Do You Value Above All Others? [You Told Us]

The Web is a huge collection of disparate pages which continue to expand and multiply. The old adage that you can find a page dedicated to any and all subjects on the Web (no matter how niche they may be) is based very much in reality. If you don’t believe me, go to Google (or Bing, or DuckDuckGo) and type in a random word or phrase. There’s a high probability you’ll get a result, and you’ll probably get thousands of results.

What Are The Best Book Review Sites?

I’m an avid reader, getting through at least one book a week. I often have several on the go at once – usually a novel, a reference book, and an autobiography – which are consumed as and when the opportunity arises. I realized long ago that there are far more books out there than I could ever read in my lifetime, with hundreds of thousands more published each and every year. This means choosing what to read is a big decision.

Loopseque Lite Turns Creating Music Into A Fun Game Anyone Can Play [iPad]

I’m no musician, not even close. The last time I actually played a real instrument was years and years ago, and although I can easily play little tunes on both piano and guitar, it’s a far cry from knowing how to make music. To me, composing is a complete mystery, and making up even a tiny, simple song seems like an impossible task. Turns out there’s an app for that too, and it’s not as impossible as I thought.
